    There are two passages that I'm struggling to understand, if someone could help that would be great! They are:

    Listening-the Siddhas, the spiritual teachers, the heroic warriors, the yogic masters.
    Listening-the earth, its support and the Akaashic ethers.
    Listening-the oceans, the lands of the world and the nether regions of the underworld.
    Listening-Death cannot even touch you.
    O Nanak, the devotees are forever in bliss.
    Listening-pain and sin are erased


    The Vedas and the Puraanas speak.
    The scholars speak and lecture.
    Brahma speaks, Indra speaks.
    The Gopis and Krishna speak.
    Shiva speaks, the Siddhas speak.
    The many created Buddhas speak.
    The demons speak, the demi-gods speak.
    The spiritual warriors, the heavenly beings, the silent sages, the humble and serviceful speak.
    even then, they could not describe Him.
    He is as Great as He wishes to be.
    O Nanak, the True Lord knows.
    If anyone presumes to describe God,
    he shall be known as the greatest fool of fools

    Please help!:wink:

    I am no expert so forgive me if this is wrong but I think the general idea is
    A. Always listen to knowledge about God in order to become closer to him, listen to the wise so that you may become wiser.
    B. God cannot be praised only worshipped. Because God is beyond words, it is foolish to describe him - you should only speak of his praises.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
